Sony Xperia 5 hands-on review: Compact, colorful, but not quite a winner

 

Is Sony's Xperia 5 a true successor to the much-loved and now mostly deceased Compact series of Sony phones that packed winning specs into a smaller, more easy to handle body? Almost. It certainly wins on the design, style, colors, and size; but there...

Sony Xperia V review: Bond’s wetsuit

 

It won't be long before those full-HD five-inchers start stealing the show and the older Xperia generation should be preparing for life in their shadow. It doesn't mean though that the Xperia V cannot hope for a good time.

Quad-band GSM /GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with 42.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; LTE Cat3 DL 100 Mbps UL 50 Mbps ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive LED-backlit Reality LCD touchscreen of 720p resolution (720 x 1280 pixels) with Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine 2;...

No JellyBean at launch ; Relatively modest battery capacity ; Video recording fails to impress ; No hardware shutter key ; Comes across as overpriced

We're obviously reviewing the Xperia V at a time when the eyes of the Sony faithful are set elsewhere. It's been a year since the Japanese went solo and, although they've blown hot and cold thus far, they seem to have found their pace. With a couple of...

Sony Xperia Z - The 5-inch Contender

 

The Sony Xperia Z is Sony Mobile's first in many areas - first quad-core, first 5.0-inch device, first full HD display, first to support HDR video recording and so on. Will the latest Android 4.1 flagship device revive the company's flogging sales? We...

Adequate 1920p display ; Classy design ; Buttery performance ; Dust and water resistance ; Almost Vanilla Android UI

Major fingerprint magnet ; Below average battery life ; 13-megapixel camera not up to expectations

The Sony Xperia Z might very well be the best Sony Mobile phone thus far - powerful with a speedy quad-core Snapdragon processor, solid build quality, angular design and a competent 5-inch display. Of course, this is topped with LTE and NFC...

Sony Xperia 5 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Sony Xperia 5 takes all of the features that made the Xperia 1 a success and boils them down into a smaller, cheaper handset.

Sony Xperia 5 initial review: Good things come in small packages

 

In true Sony fashion, the company announced its second flagship smartphone of the year in the Xperia 5. Here are our first impressions.

Smaller more compact design ; Waterproofing ; Plenty of power ; Software additions ; Solid design

Bezel at top of display ; Drop to Full HD+ resolution

The Sony Xperia 5 is a smaller, more compact model of the Xperia 1 and it's lovely. The reduction in size makes for a more comfortable one-handed device, while many of the super flagship's features are retained. How the Xperia 5 will perform compared...
